Ubuntu Multimedia :: [skype] UVC Camera Ok In Test, Not Working In Calls?

Jan 14, 2010

I've a issue on Skype 2.1 beta, my Ubuntu version is Karmic Koala. Well, my camera works perfectly in guvcview and in skype test (I already modified config.xml in my user dir to have 640x480, my cam is Ricoh r5870). OK, as soon as I start my video or I get itautomatically started it goes 320x240 and very bad. I turn it off during the call and I restart it: it works perfectly. Could I solve this issue by telling skype to open the video "just like if it were the second time" ?

Ubuntu :: Skype Video Call Is A Odd Shade Of Blue / Test Camera Outside Of It?

May 17, 2010

Ever sense i updated to 10.4 skype's video calling for me has turned a light shade of blue, nothing that really tampers with my call, just annoying the snot out of me because the person im talking to is blue.

Also I do not think its my cameras drivers because not only am I a shade of blue, but the person I am talking to is also blue and they say that I on their screen look fine. When i run a camera test with skype everything is a shade of blue as well.

I cannot for the life of me find a way to test my camera outside of skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype: Split Ringing And Calls To Headphone And Main Speaker On A Laptop?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm running 10.04 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 1505 laptop. Normally, when I plug my headphones in, all sound is diverted to them. I haven't found anything in sound preferences that changes this.(Under Sound Preferences, Output tab, there's a dropdown called Connector.It has options: "Analog Heaphones", "Analog Output" and "Analog Speakers" but they don't seem to make a difference.) I'd like to leave my headphones plugged in all day and setup my machine to play all sounds through my speakers (including Skype ringing), except Skype calls, which should play through my headphones. Skype has a feature to split the ringing and call sounds, i.e. play them on different devices, but the only option in each dropdown is "PulseAudio Server (local)".

Ubuntu :: Skype And Kdenlive - Test Video Not Working

Aug 14, 2010

I have an issue with Skype video similar to this thread [URL] where the test video doesn't work and I only see a white screen from my own webcam. The receivers can see my video and I can see their video, however. Video from my webcam works fine in Cheese and Guvcview. It seemed to start after I loaded the Compiz-config-settings-manager in an effort to fix video tearing (didn't work). Also Kdenlive now crashes every time I try to run a clip, but it was working great before. Even if I remove CompizConfig I still have the problem.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Wireless Is Not Working - Camera On Skype Or A Photo Program The Video Feed / Picture Is Black

Mar 15, 2011

i just fixed my old-ish laptop (pop accident) and instead of putting window on it my dad talked me into trying ubuntu out, gotta say love it, fast and everything but having major problems. i have a lenovo 3000 v200. everything is the same as out of the box except the keyboard, only thing i really needed to replace.
ok problems

1) wireless is not working: i have the switch on (side of the laptop) and bluetooth lights up but wireless doesnt. (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG). now i just learned about 'rfkill list' it shows that there is a soft block on the wireless. tried " rfkill unblock 0" nothing happened. also when i tried finding out wat kernel im using " uname-r" to find out more on why its not unblocking, the CLI says "comand isnt found" next two problems are small but are still frustrating

2) built in camera: the green light is on next to the lens but when trying to test the camera on skype or a photo program the video feed/ picture is black, or blank. not sure what i can do to fix that.

3) fingerprint scanner: yes i have one, i know its not efficient but I still like using it to login in instead of typing. im not sure how to get linux/ubuntu to recognize it if it even is. not sure how to set it up if it is recognized.

i would like to fix the wireless more than anything, if i can fix the camera and scanner then yeay, otherwise i can survive. oh and note i did try using the "additional drivers" app. nothing popped up.

Debian :: Recording Skype-to-landline Phone Calls?

Sep 16, 2010

I often happen to give skype-to-landline (or skype-to-mobile) phone calls for work (calls to my boss who does not have an internet connection when in exotic places). Most of this conversations are work related and, having been granted permission by my boss, I would like to record them to an audio file instead of frantically taking notes on a piece of paper while he is talking.

I have an ASUS eec901 Linux version with Jolicloud installed. When I dial Skype contacts I can hear and see them but THEY just get static with no picture or audible voice.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Samsung R580 Laptop Camera Not Working In 10.10

Nov 7, 2010

I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) from Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on my Samsung R580 laptop [URL] So far all my hardware seems to be working except the laptop's integrated camera. In 10.04 the camera worked and I could use the program "Cheese" to take photos and videos with the camera. In 10.10 I installed Cheese and tried to use my laptop's camera but it didn't work. I installed all the available updates for 10.10 but still the camera wouldn't work. The only information about the camera on the laptop's webpage is that it is a 1.3 MP Web Camera.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Test Microphone Working Correctly

Jun 17, 2011

I have a Logitech ClearChat Stereo headset, and can hear music playing with the headset connected to the PC speakers (external Logitech). Have setup Empathy to be able to talk to someone using Google Talk. It seems to have been setup correctly, as I can see 2 contacts in the offline list. I don't have PulseAudio installed (I think ??), and can see only System | Preferences | Sound , which doesn't show me much. Here are the settings at present (inboard audio card) ..

:~$ sudo aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC1200 Analog [ALC1200 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 .....

How can I test that the microphone is working correctly?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Not Working In Skype?

Jan 11, 2011

I had difficulty getting my internal microphone -

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I was able to get it to work in the Sound Recorder Application and in the System Testing function, but when I do the Skype Test Call, or call someone with Skype, while I can hear the other person perfectly well, my microphone does not appear to work at all, so it is a strictly one way conversation.

I've made sure with the ALSA Mixer that everything is turned on, and all my sound settings are fine, but microphone won't work in Skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Audio Suddenly Not Working?

May 7, 2011

I have been using Skype 2.2 beta on Ubuntu 11.04 using a Logitech 260 camera/microphone -- all with excellent results -- for the past couple of weeks.Today, for some reason unknown to me, my Skype contacts began telling me that my audio was nearly unintelligible, though I had no problem hearing them. I initially thought the problem was at their end; but then I did a test call and listened to the play-back of my own voice recording, and it was awful. It's sounds like I'm speaking under water with a buzzing sound in the background, and the words are barely audible.I wish somebody could tell me what's going on. I do not recall changing anything on my sound system. I wonder whether the problem is with Skype or Ubuntu 11.04 or my own machine (which is brand new
